Guest Post — Installing Barn Sliding Doors!

14 Apr
 Hi Tatertots & Jello readers!! I am Sarah from Northwest Hospitality. 

My husband and I design,
build, and decorate custom homes in Portland, OR. Having  “champagne
taste” on a “boxed-wine budget”, I have learned over the years to DIY
most everything in my home. Everything I’ve learned over the years in
building and decorating has evolved into my blog.
I’d love to share my Barn Door Project with you as well as some ideas for installing barn door systems in your own homes!

Bringing sliding barn doors inside the home is a fun way to add
instant character and charm. The look of sliding doors can range from a
salvaged cottage-look to a more clean and modern style.

The photos above are a salvaged barn door I installed. I found an
online company, Crown Industrial, to make the black powder-coated track.

The door and handle were treasures I found at Aurora Mills salvation yard in Aurora, Oregon .
This door took our carpenters hours to install having to work around
some warp and varying widths of it. Ugh. So worth it though! My husband
had the doors (pictured below) in a clients house using a box-style
track system. These were brand new doors and the installation was much

If you don’t have a doorway to install these looks, you can simply
hang a pair of doors on a track onto a large wall.
This really anchors a
room and gives the illusion of another room behind it. Also at the
Aurora Mills Salvation, I found some pieces of salvaged barn wood to
make this custom 5′x5′ mirror with, below.

Hope this gets your creative wheels turning!
Thank you Sarah!!
I love the look of Sliding Barn Doors! 
Sarah has great ideas. You may remember this awesome chair I featured on my TT&J facebook page recently: 
{You will be blown away by this $65 Sewing/Workout room redo. I love the curtains and the wall treatment!}
{Another fantastic makeover — her Outdoor Table}
Be sure to head over to Northwest hospitality and say hi to Sarah!!
